Karen made a huge difference for my family member to finally feel he may be on the other side of a horrible time. Worry over extraordinary medical bills took a huge toll. I don’t think it’s an overstatement to say that she has given him his life back. She has been amazing and I want to make sure others know that.

Finding honest and knowledgeable person to advocate for you when you are dealing with big medical bill is a blessing. Karen guided me on what will work and will not work when it comes to taking on the insurance and dealing with the hospital. She is honest and will not make you put your trust where you shouldn’t. She cares about her clients. She is honest, very responsive and ready to fight for you.

Healthcare is just so confusing and exhausting. When I needed help understanding what my dad was going through (working remotely with limited access to information and resources), KazAdvocate helped. A Lot. Not only was Karen capable of translating “insurance-speak” and “med-speak”, she has an awesome sense of humor–something desperately needed when navigating this labyrinth.

I’m so happy I retained Kaz.
Her knowledge and skills resulted in an outcome that was better than I could have
I had a billing dispute for $10,000 dollars,and, somehow she was able to reduce the bill to zero.
We were able to communicate with each other completely on-line, which means people from all over the country can take advantage of her skills.
Thank you very much to Kaz Vogel!

Some reasons I adore Karen as an advocate: Her experience and knowledge of health insurance – more than anyone has ever given me! Karen is willing to go through all the painful dirty work. She takes time to understand the patient and family and to educate them. Karen connects the dots.

Laura Rowley | April 13, 2018

After avoiding some major medical bills for sometime, Karen provided the support and structure I needed to finally fight back. She was kind, thorough, and competent in every way — the exact opposite of the medical insurance industry. She lifted the weight off my shoulders and was the advocate I needed. I would recommend her whole-heartedly.
